Mathematics in Computational Science and Engineering
The group of Mathematics in Computational Science and Engineering includes the Chair of Computational Mathematics and Numerical Analysis (ANMC), the Chair of Numerical Algorithms and High Performance Computing (ANCHP), the Chair of Scientific Computing and Uncertainty Quantification (CSQI), the Chair of Computational Mathematics and Simulation Science (MCSS), the Chair of Numerical Modelling and Simulation (MNS), the Chair of Continuous Optimization (OPTIM), the groups of Professors Marco Picasso (GR-PI) and Simone Deparis (SCI-SB-SD).
Promote at the highest scientific level the research and education on mathematical modeling, numerical modeling, algorithmic development and simulation, as well as their application in nature, environment, life, society, science and engineering. Establish and lead research programs in Computational Science and Engineering within the Institute of Mathematics and interact with existing projects in the CSE area across the EPFL Campus.
The next Swiss Numerics Day will be held in person at EPFL on September 13, 2021. Plenary speakers will be Paola Antonietti and Tony Lelievre. Don’t miss it. We look forward to welcome you here.
Fabian Mönkeberg receives the Mathematics Doctoral thesis Award (MDTA) for his thesis “High-order essentially nonoscillatory methods based on radial basis functions” as the best PhD thesis in mathematics in A.Y. 2019-20.
2020 SIAM Student Chapter Certificate of Recognition acknowledges Luca Coradello for exceptional service to the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne chapter during the 2019-2020 academic year.
The John Butcher Prize in Numerical Analysis was established to recognize John Butcher’s long and productive career in numerical analysis, and in particular in the numerical solution of ordinary differential equations. In keeping with John’s consistent encouragement of students, the award is for the best student talk at SciCADE. In particular, considering both the academic merit of the content and the presentation itself.
